Your role in Paid Family Leave

Most private employers with one or more employees are required to obtain Paid Family Leave insurance. 

New York designed Paid Family Leave to be easy for employers to implement, with three key tasks: 
1) Obtain Paid Family Leave coverage; 
2) Collect employee contributions to pay for their coverage; 
3) Complete the employer portion of the Paid Family Leave request form when a worker applies for leave.

Requirements for other types of employers are dependent upon the type of employer.
